Electromyography and Biofeedback

Electromyography can be done a couple different ways. I use surface electromyography, sEMG, which allows me to “read” the electrical activity of the muscles under the skin. This allows us to see how well it is contracting and how well it is resting. Why is this important? Every muscle has to rest, even the heart, that is what it is doing between beats. If a muscle is constantly working with no break, then it can be a source of problems. Biofeedback is a took I use to re-train the muscles to function more normally. This is vitally important in pelvic physical therapy due to the fact that we can’t really see the muscles working like we can your arm or leg. Using this advanced equipment I can develop a much better and specific treatment plan for you.
